Here are the best fruits with sugar levels between 1- 13 grams at most on a single cup serving. Apart from low sugar levels, these fruits are beneficial as they contain vitamins, minerals and fibre. High fibre is a good option as it ensures your blood sugar levels don’t spike quickly and all at once.
Lemons and limes
The yellow lemons and green limes are sour to taste but contain high levels of Vitamin C and make for a perfect, refreshing drink when you squeeze some lemon into a glass of water.
With just about 5 grams of sugar and lots of fibre that keep you filed.
Loaded with the required amounts of Vitamin C and just around 7 grams of sugar, they make for a delicious snack.
High in antioxidants and fibre but a dark colour, low sugar containing berry.
A fleshy, juicy fruit that is rich in vitamin C but low in sugar, just around 6 grams per serving.
A medium sized grapefruit makes for a good citric breakfast with just around 9 grams of sugar content.
A cup of diced watermelons contain about 10 grams of sugar and is rich in iron.
An orange contains about 12 grams of sugar and just about 70 calories but boost your vitamin C levels.
Not the best fruit maybe as it is quite sweet but the sugar content is still under 13 grams in an average sized fruit.
Avocados, although they don’t strike as a fruit are categorised as one and are definitely diabetes friendly.
